RTG: Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory @ Northeastern
Independent Research Experience for Undergraduates.
Research Experience. The RTG group in Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory invites applications for a Research Experience for Undergraduates at the Mathematics Department at Northeastern University. A PhD-student will mentor the selected applicants for two months in a research topic, under the supervision of a faculty member.
Candidates that are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the United States or its territories and possessions are eligible for a scholarship of $2,000 per month.
Fellowships for the current year have been already assigned. The list of students and mentors supported by the grant can be found here.
We will have a new round of applications in early Spring 2019.
A list of topics of interest in our group:
- Derived categories and homological algebra,
- Birational geometry and moduli spaces,
- Hyperkähler manifolds,
- Moduli theory and enumerative invariants,
- Hodge theory,
- Mirror symmetry,
- Geometric representation theory,
- Representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras,
- Quantum groups,
- Symplectic and Poisson geometry,
- Geometric quantization,
- Quantum field theory and string theory,
- Combinatorial Geometries,
- Toric Varieties,
- Arrangements of algebraic varieties.
